I don't know of any because of I've never been to Idaho.

After reading your post I did a google search for "solo girl and camping" and I your post was number four.

It is none of my business, you can do what you want...
...but maybe you shouldn't be advertising on the web that your going to be camping alone and looking for suggestions from strangers.

I don't know about camping near Boise, but I know Table Rock on the north side of town has some good bouldering. But if you're just headed north of Boise on 55 and 95 take a right on Big Salmon Road just south of Riggins, Idaho offers both great bouldering and camping on the Salmon River. I think a bare bones guide for both areas is available on this site. If you have a partner, rope, and a rack then go to the third bridge on Big Salmon road and sample some of the great crack lines in this fine Central Idaho Canyon. PM for more info.
Good climbing and happy camping.
Cheers,
John

Check out Reynolds Creek, its about 20 minutes out of Boise. Good bouldering. All volcanic on one side of the road, and granite on the other. Dr Topo has a guidebook for it.

Thanks to all for the beta. You know I am pretty ignorant when it comes to talking about climbing info with strangers, been lucky to have met the best people of my life climbing. I understand the concern though! Should be more careful probably.
I will def hit one of those 2 bouldering spots! Make the trip to Canada seem not so damn long! Thanks again for your time, no time to get any guides myself, leaving tomorrow!
Climb hard and smile easy.
